Cookies are information files stored on your computer that help websites remember you. We and our business partners collect information about your use of our websites through cookies.

1.5 Recording your calls

We may record or monitor calls that you receive from us, or make to us. We do this for security and training purposes and to improve the service we provide to you.

2.0 How we will use information we have collected about you

Whenever you give us your personal information, legally we have to use it in accordance with the terms of various privacy laws, including the Data Protection Act (we refer to these laws in this privacy policy as the ‘privacy laws’).

2.2 Your browsing activity on The Directory For You

If you use The Directory For You, your computer will store up to 5 of your last searches using cookies. We will also save the location you searched for (such as the postcode or geographic area). This lets you do the same search next time you use The Directory For You or search for other types of business without having to re-enter the location every time.

We may use the information you give us about yourself when you register for our online services to build up a picture of your interests. We may then use this information to try to make sure that when you visit our websites or use our online services, you don’t miss offers and information that might interest you. This is called advert targeting.

2.4 Tracking how our online services are used

We may collect information about activity on our online services, or we may use other organisations to collect it and to share the results with us. We use this information to:

  • analyse statistics;
  • track pages and paths used by visitors to, or users of, our online service;
  • target the adverts or offers, on our online services and other organisations; and
  • track the use of our links from our marketing partners’ websites to our websites.
